I am getting ready to bake a sheetcake, problem all ingred. are in bowl including 12 eggs. I dont have any veg oil... are there any substitutions. Can I use crisco shotrning, or butter it is a yellow cake
I know that some people use applesauce has a replacement for oil to lessen the amount of fat in a recipe. I would be afraid that butter or shortening would change the texture of the cake too much.
Yes, you can use butter. I do it all the time.
I always use butter in my recipes.
equal amounts? I need 1 cup . Do I cream it first or just add at room temp?
I have used butter as a substitute for oil in my cakes many times. I think it makes it richer. On the other hand, I've never made a cake that took 12 eggs. Hope this helps...
Its a triple recipe
I melt mine but leave it to get back to room temp before using.
edited to fix grammatical error
Ideally you would have creamed it with the sugar, eggs etc til fluffy, but if everything is in the bowl already, than cream the butter separately than add.
Well, thank you everyone, the cake is in the oven. My fingers are crossed!
I'm sure it will be delicious!
Have a nice day.......
This cake turned out wonderfully! THANK YOU
